JDOM heads towards Java core
09:53, 1 Mar 2001 UTC | Edd Dumbill

Jason Hunter writes to say that JDOM has been accepted by the Java Community Process as a Java Specification Request, JSR-102.

The JSR process will be used to create a "1.0" release of JDOM, already gaining popular acceptance over the W3C DOM as an easy and efficient API for processing XML in Java.

The acceptance of JDOM as a JSR is significant as it opens the door for JDOM to become a part of the core Java platform. Hunter writes:

JDOM will still be released as open source software, and technical discussion will continue to take place on public mailing lists. I am the Specification Lead for the JDOM JSR and am working now to set up a formal Expert Group.

For more information, read JSR-102.
